Legislative Process and Presidential Veto: The Case of Argentina(2021_2_40_002)


What kinds of legislation lead to presidential vetoes? To which parts of bills does the president tend to exercise his/her line-item veto authority? Most studies on presidential vetoes analyze cases in the United States, where the president does not have line-item veto authority, whereas there is a limited number of empirical studies that focus on Latin America. Through text analysis of bills approved by the Argentine Congress, this study aims to elucidate the impacts of each stage of the legislative process on the president’s decision to exercise his/her veto authority.
